(Washington, D.C.) Congressman Alcee L. Hastings (D-FL) and Senator Benjamin L. Cardin (D-MD), Co-Chairmen of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe (U.S. Helsinki Commission), and Ranking Minority Member Congressman Christopher H. Smith (R-NJ), sent the following letter to Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliev. The letter expresses concern over the impending termination of the radio broadcasts of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) and Voice of America (VOA) on local frequencies. In particular, the letter urges President Aliev to keep RFE/RL and VOA on the air, as he begins a new relationship with President-elect Barack Obama.
